This is a book about baby loss. Oh how I wish I could have read this after my miscarriage. It also would have been helpful after Nathan was born and I was struggling with the fragility of his life. Not only does Sarah help you not feel as alone in your pain, but she gives you a hope in life that is eternal and lasting. It is a book about brokenness, pain, love, and hope renewed.
Sarah Philpott shares her own experience of pregnancy loss as well as the varied stories of other mothers. Baby loss comes in many forms–early term and late term miscarriage, stillbirth, infant loss, and even the loss of the child you were expecting to one with special needs.
She gently addresses the hurting reader:
Dear mama, this is your path of life. Even though your journey is paved with rocky soil, you must keep marching toward life ahead. I know you wonder how forward is even possible. Right now every single step brims with pain, doesn’t it?
As you journey through Loved Baby, you can expect Sarah to lead you straight into the depth of your pain, give you realistic expectations for what life with loss with be like, and hope for what is to come.
Because in just a little while, that is where you can be. For eternity. Reconnected with your babe. When your life starts spinning out of control, try to look ahead. Because you know what? There is nothing on this earth that is promised. Nothing we are in control of. The only thing we know for certain is that the ending of our hike is us meeting up with our baby in the presence of God.
